Sturdier than I expected and useful but leaves a mark on the walls
on 18 May 2017
- I find this product very useful, but I only weigh 65kg and the weight limit is 100kg. Also, weight limits can be lower than this depending on the strength of your door frames
- The door frame needs to have an overhang at the top (i.e. extend away from the wall) so that the pull up bar can hook/clip on - as seen in the seller’s images. Just make sure the door frame measurements are equal to or larger than the measurements labelled in the seller’s images.
- Like most pull up bars it leaves a grey/black mark on white door frames and an indent. So maybe avoid if you plan on selling your house soon.
+ This item does not need permanent fixing and can be set-up and removed very easily (once the initial bolting and assembling process is completed, which only takes a few minutes) just by literally lifting it at an angle – although it is not as easy to transport given its slightly awkward fixed shape.
+ The bar also fixes very snug on various door widths, which leads to less energy wasted in stabilising when performing a pull-up so you can churn out more reps.
+ Also, useful at encouraging you to do 10 reps or so, every time you pass through the doorway.
+ Also, very useful for increasing the range of movement when doing push-ups
+ Various grips: (wide/narrow), (palms facing towards/90 degrees/away from the wall)
